Emperor / Ancestor - Antique-Style Wall Scroll

This kind of artwork is often called an "ancestor painting". Though it's only your ancestor if you are a descendant of the Emperor.

This wall scroll is designed to have a classic look (like an antique).

It should be noted that this is a "partial print". The black detailed lines were printed on the special handmade paper. We don't do a lot of partial prints like this, but many people kept requesting antique-styled wall scrolls. I finally picked some up on my last trip.

The use of the printing process for this artwork keeps the price of the artwork affordable (it would be more than 3 times more if this was 100% hand-painted). All of the colored portions are hand-painted.
